"The Congress" Palacio Congreso Tip by Frisbeeace
Palacio Congreso, Buenos Aires: 39 reviews and 81 photos
Finished in 1906 in an Italian academic style with some classical touches, the building is a four-storied rectangle and has two pavilions one each side. Around it there is a Corinthian colonnade. The Salon Azul and its magnificent library, all carved in wood, are worth visiting. The Congress also houses some valuable paintings and Sevres vases.
In front of the Congress building there are two plazas each one with its own monument or statue. One of them is "Le Penseur" by August Rodin. Certainly one of the most impressive is the group in front of the Congress called "Monument of the two Congresses", an allegory that represents the Andes in a granite terrace, and the main rivers of the plains: Parana, Uruguay and Rio de La Plata flowing into a large pool.
Address: Av Rivadivia & Av Entre Rios - Plaza Congreso,
